Video: John Boreland - Murder of prominent loyalist gunned down in Belfast street met with condemnation

A north Belfast DUP MLA has condemned the murder of prominent loyalist John Boreland.

Mr Boreland, a member of the Ulster Defence Association, was shot dead in Sunningdale Gardens off the Ballysillan Road at around 10pm yesterday.

Local DUP MLA Nelson McCausland said the murder could not be justified and appealed for no retaliation.

"This is not the way forward for north Belfast," he said.
